The Medical Council of India (MCI) has decided to move a division bench of the AP high court against its earlier single-judge order to sanction additional seats to two government medical colleges in Telangana. If sources are to be believed, the apex medical body would file a write petition in the court on Monday, 23rd 2012. While the MCI rejected the state government's proposal to sanction 50 additional seats each to Osmania Medical College, Gandhi Medical College and Kakatiya Medical College, the HC had on 13th July directed the apex body of medical education to sanction 50 additional seats each to Osmania and Kakatiya medical colleges within two days.
However, the MCI says that the HC order is in conflict with the Supreme Court guidelines according to which the seat sanctioning process was to be completed by 15th July 15. And as per the schedule to be followed for each academic year, classes must start on 1st August. Earlier, seeking clarification of the SC on this issue was one of the options before the MCI, but the authorities chose the legal wrangle. "When the SC guidelines are clear, there is no need of seeking further clarification. If we follow the high court order, it would mean defying the SC guidelines and that would lead to contempt of court. So we are moving a division bench," said a highly placed source in the MCI.
"If they are questioning the HC order, we are also ready to face them in court. It's a question of protecting the interest of prospective students and we will not backtrack on that," K Ratna Kishore, principal secretary of health, said. However, the TRS is blaming the government for Telangana getting the raw deal. The party is questioning its failure to move the Supreme Court after the MCI's non-compliance with the HC order. "The developments are indicative of the discriminative attitude of the government towards TRS," said B Vinod Kumar, a former MP and politburo member of TRS.
